The American University Law School 

The American University was chartered in 1893 by the U. S. 
Congress with Presidential approval. The original 75-acre campus 
in the northwest section of the District of Columbia was selected 
with the conviction that a physical proximity to the nation's capital 
is an invaluable asset to an educational institution devoted spe- 
cifically to graduate study. Today the University, with students 
enrolled from all 50 states and approximately 80 foreign countries, 
embraces the College of Arts and Sciences, Washington College of 
Law, School of Business Administration, School of Government 
and Public Administration, School of International Service, Col- 
lege of Continuing Education, and the School of Nursing. The 
Washington College of Law, which merged with the University in 
1949, was established in 1896 primarily to permit women as well 
as men to pursue professional studies. The founding principles of 
the Law School and the University concerning equal opportunity 
and the melding of graduate study with the unique characteristics 
of the national capital continue to play a critical role in The 
American University's operation and development. 

The lawyer has long been recognized as uniquely suited to 
facilitate dispute resolution and to effectuate organizations, pro- 
grams and policies pertaining to the activities of a society. How- 
ever, the complexities now inherent in these activities require, 
ever increasingly, that law students assimilate non-legal material 
to maintain the unique confidence of their fellow man. Legal educa- 
tion in Washington, D. C. permits the broadest possible student 
exposure to the infinite scope of people, institutions, concepts and 
processes relevant to the existence and improvement of our com- 
plex society. The Law School recognizes this environmental poten- 
tial and seeks to implement a formal curriculum and supplemental 
educational activities that will facilitate student appreciation of 
the elements that are basic to our society and reflected in the 
Washington environment. This exposure insures that our stu- 



LAW SCHOOL 9 

dents will continue to enjoy the broad confidence that individuals 
and institutions traditionally have placed in lawyers. 

The John Sherman Myers Law Building with adjoining 
Hutchins Hall is a modern, integrated complex designed to 
facilitate effective law study and research. Class, seminar and 
court rooms, Faculty and student activity offices, administrative 
offices, and lounges are arranged to promote constructive inter- 
action among students, Faculty and staff, and to provide basic 
materials for reference during such interaction. The main law 
library is located and designed to minimize distractions while 
providing students and Faculty with convenient access to a full 
complement of more than 70,000 volumes of primary and second- 
ary materials in domestic, foreign and international law^and other 
study areas. The main University library is located in adjacent 
Battelle-Tompkins Library, and the world's most comprehensive 
complex of general and specialized libraries arid other reference 
and archive facilities are accessible to students within fifteen to 
thirty minutes by various transportation modes. 

The Faculty embodies a broad spectrum of experience, special- 
ties, ages, personal philosophies and teaching methods. Such 
diversity is inherent in the School's basic objectives, as is the 
compatibility with which these diverse elements constructively 
interact. The students are expected to take advantage of this 
diversity by understanding views expressed, formulating and 
projecting constructive comments thereon, and infusing relevant, 
creative ideas. The student is also encouraged to respond in a 
similar fashion to fellow students and to the diversely disciplined 
individuals from other schools of the University and from the 
Washington area. 



Programs of Instruction 

The degree of Juris Doctor is awarded to students who (1) 
have satisfactorily completed not less than eighty semester hours 
of courses including all courses required by the Law Faculty; (2) 
have been in attendance for at least six resident semesters of law 
study, the last two of which must be at the Law School; and (3) 
have been recommended for the degree by the Law Faculty. Satis- 
factory completion of twelve semester hours constitutes a resident 
semester, and a semester hour is equivalent to one hour of class- 
work per week for a period of fifteen weeks. 



r * 




LAW SCHOOL 11 

The Law School offers a full-time and a part-time program 
leading to the degree of Juris Doctor. Students in the full-time 
program must take twelve to fourteen semester hours of courses 
each semester so as to permit fulfillment of degree requirements 
in three academic years. Every full-time student is expected to 
attain a level of achievement in each course that reflects his full 
potential, and consequently he may not devote more than twenty 
hours per week during the fall and spring semesters to employ- 
ment activities, with or without compensation. 

Students in the part-time program must take eight to ten 
semester hours of courses in each of the fall and spring semesters 
and five to six semester hours, as may be prescribed, during each 
summer session following the first and second academic years of 
attendance. Thus, degree requirements for part-time students 
should be satisfied in four academic years and two intervening 
summer sessions. 

A student, while enrolled at the Law School, will be given no 
credit toward the Juris Doctor degree for work at any other edu- 
cational institution or in any other division of the University, nor 
may he engage in such course work unless specific written permis- 
sion is obtained in advance from the Dean of the Law School. 
Furthermore, a student is not permitted to transfer from the day 
to evening program or vice versa without special written approval 
from the Dean. 

The Law School and the School of Business Administration 
have jointly established a plan under which students may pursue 
a four-year course that satisfies the requirements for both the 
Juris Doctor and Master in Business Administration degrees 
awarded by The American University. Information for further 
details of this program may be obtained by writing to Professor 
Egon Guttman, The American University Law School, Washing- 
ton, D. C. 20016. 



Curriculum 

The complexities of the law defy comprehension in a lifetime, 
much less in several years, and thus the Law School is dedicated 
to endowing its students primarily with a sound grasp of basic 
legal institutions, methodologies, principles and the catalysts for 
their evolution. The law course curriculum provides the core struc- 



12 THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 

ture for systematic student exploration and enlightenment in 
anticipation of professional work in the law or a wide variety of 
other disciplines involving the essential forces of human progress. 
Supplementary activities permit individual emphasis on particular 
facets of legal training and professional responsibilities. 

Fundamental preparation for the practice of law and for 
scholarly work in the law requires scheduled exposure to a com- 
bination of basic legal subject-matter, and this requirement is 
reflected in the first-year curriculum developed by the Faculty and 
students. During the succeeding years each student is responsible 
for selecting, in consultation with the Faculty, courses that will 
best cultivate his own talents and promote his professional aspira- 
tions. Bar admission requirements, undergraduate training, de- 
sires for specialization and related factors are generally important 
criteria for student determinations and Faculty counseling regard- 
ing the selection and sequencing of each student's elective courses 
and seminars after the first year. 

Set forth below is a brief description of the required first-year 
courses and the elective courses and seminars for the second and 
third years currently being offered at the Law School.

Research, Fellowships and Lectures 

Individual members of the Law School community frequently 
engage in specialized research in connection with the preparation 
of publications, seminars, and testimony. Also, group research and 
study projects have been or are being undertaken in the areas of 
rehabilitation, criminal justice, business-government relations 
and Latin American affairs. Student participation, which is a vital 
component of these projects, constitutes an extremely valuable 
intellectual experience for highly qualified and specially motivated 
students. 

Each year five upper-class students who have demonstrated 
superior scholastic proficiency and exceptional competence in legal 
research and writing are awarded the Dean's Fellowships. The 
Dean's Fellows, who are given full-tuition scholarships for the 
succeeding year, participate with the Law Faculty in a year-long 
seminar that focuses on the theories and techniques of legal re- 
search, expression and teaching. In connection with this seminar 
work, the Fellows, under the guidance of a Faculty member, 
acquire clinical experience by association with first-year student 
efforts involving legal research and analysis. 

The Edwin A. Mooers Lectureship, established in honor of a 
distinguished member of the Law Faculty since 1918, is held each 
spring by a prominent scholar who comments on a topic of con- 
temporary significance. Holders of the lectureship have been the 
late Roscoe Pound, Dean Emeritus of Harvard Law School; The 
Honorable Charles E. Clark, former Judge of the Federal Court 
of Appeals for the Second Circuit; Ralph A. Newman, Professor 
at Hastings Law School of the University of California ; Supreme 
Court Chief Justice Warren E. Burger; J. Lee Rankin, former 
General Counsel to the President's Commission on the Assassina- 
tion of President John F. Kennedy; Charles B. Nutting, former 
Dean of the National Law Center of The George Washington Uni- 
versity; Allen E. Throop, former General Counsel of the Com- 
munications Satellite Corporation; and The Honorable Abe 
Fortas, former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

Other Educational Activities 

The American University Law Review is a legal journal edited and 
published by law school students selected on the basis of scholar- 
ship and the ability to do creative research and writing. The 
quarterly issues of the Law Review go to the federal and state 
courts and administrative agencies, the nation's law schools and 
numerous other institutions and individuals responsible for prac- 
ticing and shaping the law. The students, as part of their overall 
publishing responsibilities, write comments and notes on legal 
developments and significant cases, as well as critically evaluate 
and edit the lead articles and book reviews written by teachers, 
lawyers, judges, legislators and other scholars. Membership on 
the staff of the Law Review is universally recognized in the legal 
profession as both an honor and a unique educational experience. 

Legal Aid Services permits qualified students to assist practicing 
attorneys and legal administrators in the Washington Metropol- 
itan area in their representation and handling of indigents 
involved in a broad variety of legal problems. Participating stu- 
dents become exposed to valuable clinical experiences under the 
supervision of such attorneys and administrators, and in some 
instances are permitted to argue specific legal matters before 
various courts in the area. The American Bar Association, for the 
past two years, has recognized the Law School's Legal Aid pro- 
gram as the "most outstanding Student Bar project in the United 
States." The program is supervised by a student Board of Direc- 
tors in consultation with a Faculty advisor. 

The Law School newspaper is a student publication which provides 
the Law School community and its alumni with news and com- 
mentary on contemporary legal problems and other items of 
related interest. Membership on the newspaper's staff provides 
unique experience concerning creative investigation and expres- 
sion. The American Bar Association has accorded special recogni- 
tion to the newspaper. 

The Student Bar Association, affiliated with the American Bar 
Association and composed of all students at the Law School, is 
responsible for designing and implementing a broad variety of 
activities to foster the moral, intellectual and social development 
of its members. The Association's student officers and delegates 
direct its multi-faceted functions and provide essential liaison

among the diverse elements of the Law School and the profes- 
sional bar so as to insure relevant responses to the needs of the 
students, Faculty, University and profession. 

Moot Court is a professional term traditionally used to denote 
experience in written and oral advocacy in trial and appellate 
environments. The Law School offers several opportunities, in 
addition to curriculum offerings, for such experience and for 
recognition of notable achievement in this area. The Student Bar 
Association conducts an oral argument competition open to all 
students. The New York City Bar Association and American 
Society of International Law individually sponsor national appel- 
late argument competitions in which the Law School is repre- 
sented by specially selected students. Regional competitions are 
used to determine the finalists who argue before judges and law- 
yers of national repute. Participation in these two competitions is 
a nationally recognized honor. 

Law Wives Club, the organization for the wives of law students, 
sponsors social, intellectual and charitable activities for its mem- 
bers, and provides valuable assistance to various Law School 
activities. 

Professional Fraternities have established chapters at the Law 
School which sponsor professional and social activities for their 
law student memberships. The fraternities include Beta Chapter 
of Phi Delta Delta, Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Beta Pi, John W. 
Davis Senate of Delta Theta Phi, Louis D. Brandeis Chapter of 
Phi Alpha Delta, and John F. Kennedy Inn of Phi Delta Phi.

Admission Information 

Students can provide the University community with the sen- 
sitivity required to insure that its courses and supplemental edu- 
cational activities are continually responsive and relevant to each 
student's highest intellectual and moral aspirations as well as the 
requirements of various professions, communities, and state, 
national and international entities. Consequently, the Law School 
expects its students to utilize the human and physical resources 
of the University with a high degree of proficiency and to make 
individual contributions to the progressive evolution of such 
resources. This participatory educational philosophy requires the 
selection of mature students whose history reflects high scholastic 
achievement, legal aptitude and individual initiative. 

First-Year Class 

Students are admitted only in the Fall Semester. Application 
for admission to the full-time or part-time Juris Doctor program 
may be made by students who will have received a Bachelor's de- 
gree or its equivalent from an approved college and will have 
taken the Law School Admission Test prior to beginning their 
study in the Law School. To insure timely consideration of his 
request for admission each student should file his application 
accompanied by the $15 fee and make arrangements for the Law 
School to receive all his official transcripts and test score prefer- 



28 THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 

ably by January 1, and in any event before April 1, of the year 
law study is expected to commence. The admission application and 
pertinent instructions are included with this Bulletin. 

All applications are subject to the approval of the Faculty, 
and students are selected principally upon the basis of the com- 
petence and progress reflected in all their college records, the 
material furnished in their applications for admission, and the 
results shown on the Law School Admission Test. The considera- 
tion of applications begins in December, and most of the admis- 
sions are made by April. If applications and/or supporting tran- 
scripts and test scores are received after April 1, they are con- 
sidered only to the extent spaces may be available, but are not 
likely to be considered if received in completed form after May 31. 

The application and application fee should be sent directly by 
the applicant; official transcripts and Law School Admission Test 
scores should be sent directly by the issuing institution to the 
Director of Admissions, Room 101, Myers Hall, The American 
University Law School, Washington, D.C. 20016. Arrangements 
should be made by the applicant with the Educational Testing 
Service, Box 944, Princeton, New Jersey, to take the Law School 
Admission Test no later than in the February of the calendar 
year for which admission is requested. The test customarily is 
given four times a year — in November, February, April and 
August. 



Advanced Standing 

A student who has pursued law study at another approved 
law school may be admitted to the full-time or part-time Juris 
Doctor program in the Fall, Spring or Summer Semesters if his 
undergraduate record and his Law School Admission Test score 
would have made him admissible to the first-year class and if his 
law work is of high quality. The amount of credit given by the 
Law School for law study completed elsewhere and the conditions 
of admission with advanced standing are subject to approval 
by the Law School Faculty. A prerequisite for admission with 
advanced standing is satisfactory completion of two resident 
semesters of work, or the equivalent thereof, at an approved law 
school. An applicant must submit all data required for admission 
of first-year students. 



LA W SCHOOL 29 

Unclassified Students and Auditors 

Graduate students, students of other approved law schools, 
members of the bar, and other qualified individuals may apply 
to the Director of Admissions for admission to particular courses 
offered at the Law School in the Fall, Spring or Summer Semesters. 
Such admission, which is limited and subject to approval of the 
Law School Faculty, may be permitted for the purpose of auditing 
or earning credit for transfer to other schools. 



Performance Evaluation 

The Law School's requirement that each student exploit his 
full potential for legal study necessitates an optimum comprehen- 
sion of all assigned materials for each course and a satisfactory 
demonstration of such comprehension in written assignments, 
during classes and examination sessions. Furthermore, each stu- 
dent is expected to discharge his obligation to fellow students by 
full compliance with the rules and regulations applicable at the 
Law School and by providing intelligent insights into problems 
under discussion in and out of class. The privilege of membership 
in the Law School may be withdrawn from a student who fails to 
meet these obligations to the Law School community and himself. 

A law student's performance in each course is normally ex- 
pressed in terms of the following letter grades which have numer- 
ical equivalents for computation purposes: A or 3; B+ or 2.5; 
B or 2; C+ or 1.5; C or 1 ; D or .5; and F or 0. A minimum 
course grade of D or .5 is required before credit may be received 
for a particular course. A minimum weighted grade average of 
1.0 for each academic year and the total six resident semesters is 
a prerequisite to continuation in the Law School and to candidacy 
for the Juris Doctor degree. The Law Faculty will dismiss a stu- 
dent who fails to maintain the minimum academic average or who, 
in its opinion, does not properly discharge his obligation as a 
participant in the Law School . 

Basic elements of performance evaluation at the Law School 
vary with regard to courses and Faculty members, but they gen- 
erally focus on class participation, research skills and written 
responses to examination questions, problems assigned during a 
course and research topics. 



LAW SCHOOL 31 

Services for Students and Graduates 

Placement at the Law School is supervised by the Placement Office 
to facilitate each student's selection of suitable employment. Stu- 
dents are personally interviewed by the director, who maintains 
records which permit correlation of student interests with place- 
ment opportunities and who provides appropriate information on 
bar requirements, fellowships and judicial clerkships. In addition, 
students are furnished with information on part-time and sum- 
mer employment, and openings in law offices, corporations, gov- 
ernment offices, courts and other institutions. Potential employers 
are encouraged to inteview students at the Law School, thereby 
permitting students to acquire conveniently information on vari- 
ous types of legal work and to make selections most compatible 
with their respective talents and aspirations. 

Housing on the University's campus is limited to undergraduate 
students and their graduate student resident advisors. Informa- 
tion on non-University accommodations proximate to the campus 
may be obtained by visiting the University Housing Office on 
campus. The University provides law students with a full comple- 
ment of dining and refreshment facilities, and arrangements can 
be made for board contracts. 

Health Services for minor sickness and health treatment of full- 
time students are handled by the University Infirmary. More com- 
plex illness and diagnostic requirements are referred to Sibley 
Memorial Hospital located near the campus, and the costs are 
borne by the student. All full-time students are required to submit 
a medical history prior to their initial registration and they are 
also urged to participate in the University's group Student Acci- 
dent and Sickness Insurance Plan which assists in covering the 
cost of extensive medical treatment. 

Recreation opportunities encompass a broad variety of spectator 
and participatory sports, theater, music, lectures and discussion 
groups, and the normal complement of student union facilities. 
The Law School community is expected to seek some identification 
with other elements of the University and thus further develop 
and enrich itself in a comprehensive sense. 

Religious Groups are an integral part of the University, and a 
variety of services are held regularly at the Kay Spiritual Life 
Center adjacent to the Law School under the direction of the 
University Chaplain. 



LAW SCHOOL 33 

Tuition, Fees and Finaneial Aid 

Tuition for full-time students (twelve credit hours and 
above) during the 1970-71 academic year is $840 per semester. 
For part-time and all summer session students tuition is $64 per 
registered credit hour. Deferred payments for tuition may be 
arranged under appropriate conditions so as to distribute tuition 
payments throughout each semester. The non-refundable $100 
admission deposit required from each beginning student immedi- 
ately following acceptance is credited against his first semester 
tuition charge. 

Given a continuation of the current economic conditions as 
well as the need to continue and accelerate academic growth of the 
University, it can be reasonably expected that tuition and fee 
increases within a 5-10% range will be required each foreseeable 
year beyond 1970-71. 

Prorated cancellation of tuition charges may be allowed after 
an executed withdrawal form provided by the Law School Regis- 
trar is received and signed by the Office of Student Accounts. A 
student permitted or requested to withdraw from classes during 
the Fall or Spring Semester is entitled to a cancellation of 
charges for tuition in accordance with the schedule below. (The 
first week of a semester begins on the official opening date of the 
semester, and withdrawal occurs on the date the withdrawal form 
is signed by the Office of Student Accounts.) Students who dis- 
continue class attendance but do not officially withdraw during 
the cancellation period will be responsible for payment of the 
full amount of the applicable tuition and fees. 

Withdrawal during the first week of semester 100% 

less $5 

Withdrawal during the second week of semester 80% 

Withdrawal during the third and fourth weeks 

of semester 60% 

Withdrawal during the fifth week of semester 40% 

Withdrawal during the sixth week of semester 20% 

Withdrawal after the sixth week of semester None 

A refund of 60% tuition will be made in the Summer Session if 
the forms are presented to the Office of Student Accounts by the 
end of the second week of classes. No other refunds will be made 
during the summer session. 

Fees required to be paid along with each semester's tuition 



34 THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 

are a General Fee of $15 ($6 for Summer Session) and a Health 
Fee of $20 (required of all full-time law students and of all others 
who wish to use infirmary facilities). In addition, special fees are 
payable in connection with Admission Application ($15), late 
registration ($10), late payment of financial obligations ($10; , 
special examinations, and official transcripts. 

Financial Aid for meeting the costs of Law School study are 
available to qualified students in a variety of forms. Listed below 
are the major scholarship and loan funds now available, and 
further information concerning their applicability to individual 
circumstances may be obtained by writing the Director of Admis- 
sions, The American University Law School, Washington, D.C. 
20016. All students requiring financial aid must file an application 
or otherwise contact the Director of Admissions at least four 
months prior to date such financial assistance is required. How- 
ever, new applicants should not apply for scholarship assistance 
until after they have been accepted for admission. 

The Dean's Scholarships, established by friends of the Law School 
and The American University, provide tuition assistance for 
full-time students. They are awarded for each academic year and 
are renewable upon the basis of achievement and maintenance of 
high scholastic performance. 

The Dean's Fellowships, awarded annually to five students who 
have demonstrated exceptional proficiency in legal research and 
writing, provide full tuition. For further information see section 
on Fellowships. 

Grace Markel Daish Scholarship. The income of this fund given 
by Grace Markel Daish provides tuition assistance for a woman 
student. 

Belva A. Lockwood Memorial Scholarship. The income of this fund 
given in memory of Belva A. Lockwood provides tuition assist- 
ance for a woman student. 

CLEO Program. The Law School participates with the Council on 
Legal Education Opportunity to assist disadvantaged students 
who successfully complete the summer institutes sponsored by 
CLEO. 

Loan Funds, intended to meet tuition expenses and to permit 
repayment after graduation or under other suitable conditions, 
are available under the following major programs: 



LAW SCHOOL 35 

National Defense Education Act Loans 

United Student Aid, Inc., Loan Program 

The American Bar Assoication Fund for Legal Education 

Federal Communications Bar Association Loan Program 

Foundation of the American College of Trial Lawyers 

Loan Program 
Lawyers' Wives of the District of Columbia Foundation 

Loans 

The Deferred Tuition Plan of The American University permits 
properly qualified students to make their tuition payments in 
three equal installments during each semester rather than in 
full at the beginning of each semester. There is a small service 
charge associated with payments under this plan. 

Veterans' Benefits for law study expenses are available under 
Public Law 89-358 (Veterans' Readjustment Benefits Act of 
1966), or the previously existing Public Laws, P.L. 84-634 (War 
Orphans), P.L. 88-361 ( Children of Disabled Veterans), and 
P.L. No. 87-815 (Disabled Veterans). Applications for these bene- 
fits should be filed with the Veterans Administration prior to 
enrollment, and a Certificate of Eligibility from the V.A. must be 
presented to the Veterans' Counselor at the University during 
registration.
